I stayed one night in the Gordon villa. The villa has a car port but it's a little small. Recommend you back in so you can download your bags under cover. The villa had a 2 burner stove top and a mini fridge. The unit had a table and chairs for dining and the bedroom was separate from the living room/lounge. You have an ocean view from the living room. A couple of the windows had screens so you could open the windows without the sandflies getting in the room. The bed was big and comfortable. The bathroom had a shower. The shower had plenty of hot water but the only negative was the water pressure. It was adequate but barely. The location is less than a 5min drive to Pancake Rocks. The motel has it's own glow worm grotto and I did see a couple of the blue lights. This was a good stopover point on the west coast, though the motel is up for sale.
